Due to be released in November in the US by E-Reads (as an e-book). The award-wining SENTIENTS OF ORION series new covers were created by the amazing Austin Designworks


Once again I have to thank the amazing Austin Designworks for creating what I wanted out of a few vague ideas. They have never let me down and always exceeded my expectations!

To celebrate, I’m reposting the news that the Sentients of Orion series will be available in the USA soon. While the series has it’s own minnie website, all news pertaining to the books will be reposted here. This is what I said yesterday:

It’s been a while since I announced the release of Sentients of Orion in e-book form in the US. Things went quiet then because it’s taken me months to organise some admin biz to do with the release. Finally that’s completed, so I hope to have a release date for you soon.

I’m also very excited to whisper that Wayne Haag (the amazing artist ANKARIS) and I will be doing some work together on the Sentients series release in the USA and maybe other projects in time. Details to come!

For those of you who have supported Sentients during its release in the the Commonwealth (particularly my then editor, Darren Nash), I thank you from the bottom of my heart. As some of you know, I wept blood over this series. I’m so happy to think it will get a wider release. If the ebook sales go alright, then it may be available POD.

So when the time comes, I will ask you to spread word for me.
